f l Tests for New Frontier, Birch Society Caliiorna to See Bitter Battles By BOB BARNES LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three bitter races for Congress in one of the nation's largest metropolitan centers promise an intriguing test of current political leanings. Seldom are voters' choices so sharp as in California's newly revamped 25th, 27th, and 29th congressional districts. Republican or De-nocrat? Outspoken conservative or outspoken liberal? More government in Washington or less? Those issues, clearly defined by the six candidates will provide tests of both the New Frontier and of the John Birch Society, controversial ultraconservative organi. zation. The contests match three stoutly conservative Republicans— members and defenders of the Birch Society and sharply critical of the Kennedy administration— against Democrats who support the New Frontier and attack what they call Birchism. At stake are two Republican seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. The third seat is in a new district. Both sides predict victory. The overwhelmingly Democratic Cal- bank has represented for five ifornia Legislature drew the dis- j terms. The 173,000 registered vot- tricts with Democratic voter reg- j erg j nc i uc je 104,000 istration margins of 60 per cent and up. Taking the, races one by one: 25th District— Once represented in Congress by Richard M. Nixon, the district Avas re-drawn recently with 153,000 registered voters— 98,000 Democrats, 55,000 Republicans. It is in the San Gabriel Valley east of " -r Angeles. Republican incumbent John H. Rousselot of Baldwin Park seeks a second term. His opponent is two-term Democratic Assemblyman Ronald Brooks Cameron of Whittier. Rousselot. 34, says the overriding issue is "survival of our constitutional republic and our capitalistic-free enterprise system as we have known it." Cameron,, 35, an accountant, says Rousselot's Birch membership is a major issue, adds: "The man's not competent to be a congressman." Democrats, 4,000 unstated. Opposing Hiestand is Democratic Los Angeles city councilman Everett. G. Burkhalter of North Hollywood. Hiestand, 73, says conservatives are under vicious attack by the leftists and the so-called liberal extremists. Unless the people show they want the present unbelievably harmful and dangerous policies abandoned, those policies will be continued and the consequences are certain to disastrous." Richardson, 34, campaigns as a conservative, calls for a firmer stand against the Communists and elimination of what he calls "piecemeal surrender." Brown, 41, was a onetime conscientious objector who wound up as a second lieutenant in the \trny in World War II. He pledges to support the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE), whose endorsement he has.

KANSAS CITY (AP) — The j Cuban crisis may bring nuclear Mvar or the first steps toward! general disarmament and peace, j says Paul G. Hoffman, director of the United Nation s Special Fund and former Marshall Plan administrator. "Powerful nations can wage a cold war for many years, but nations cannot remain in a high state of alert indefinitely," he said. "Something must happen. "It is my conviction we will move away from the arms race. If we don't, it it could only end in the financial and spiritual bankruptcy of the world." Hoffman spoke at the annual United Nations Day dinner at Kansas City University. He expressed faith in the ability of U Thant, acting secretary general of the United Nations, as a mediating force in the Cuban crisis. He said a passion for peace is universal among most of the world's peoples, yet many statesmen continue to operate unaware of the intensity of this desire.

Most declined to move because of strong ties to this area and a willingness to take their chances on finding new jobs. "I run into many others like myself," says Pickard. "Some tell me that if they knew circumstances would be such, they would have taken transfers." Pickard, 52, represents workers who are up against the age barrier in seeking new employment.
